Acting NDS Chief:

 ‘Taliban is pursuing violence with full support of ISI of Pakistan’

The acting Afghan intelligence chief Massoud Andarabi has said the Taliban group will pursue violence with the full support of Pakistani military intelligence, Inter Services Intelligence (ISI).

Briefing the Afghan lawmakers in the Lower House of the Parliament, Andarabi said the Taliban group will pursue violence in the summer as they are being supported by ISI and encouraged to increase violence and bring more areas under their control.

Andarabi further added that the enemies of the country were more hopeful last year considering the situation of the country as they eyed to capture more areas with persistent violence and increase their political legitimacy.

However, Andarabi said the offensive by the Taliban militants group was repulsed as they failed to have strategic gains.

This is not the first time top Afghan security officials are criticizing Pakistan for interfering in internal affairs of the country.

The Afghan officials have long been slamming Pakistan, specifically the country’s military intelligence for supporting the anti-government armed groups in Afghanistan.

The officials also criticize the Pakistani military intelligence for providing shelters to Afghan militant groups, specifically the Taliban group and the notorious Haqqani network who are blamed for deadly attacks in the country.
